It is a thumper. The farthest I've seen a deer run after being shot with a 450 was 20 yards. Most of them don't take a step. Good luck!

I'll be out between ohio and PA...


Have 11 days off. So whenever I can get a baby sitter I'll be in the woods.

yesterday was a upsetting day opening day saw absolutely nothing zip heard plenty of shooting my buddie got a nice 6 pointer. well today was a excellant day. seen 2 by 7 30 & had a buck run out of the state park & nailed him @ 200 yrds with my 450 bushmaster & while gutting him out a parade of 21 deer came out ot the state park & all hell broke loose both of my buddies got 2 does . the remainder turned around & was carring the mail back to the state park @ 250 yrds away i aimed for the front doe & hit her a little too far back & see went down & then i shot again for the heart & thats all she wrote. while gutting her out about a half hr later 2 more does came with in 25 yrds but i did not have a third tag otherwise i would be done in lorain county. what was really strange i shot that lead doe & & the remainder of the deer stoped in their tracks& looked @ the doe& then they took off . maybe paying their last respects.

Not a bad day in the woods. You using a AR .450 or a bolt gun?

t.shaffer 11-29-2017 02:28 AM

d80hunter it's a ruger bolt action& i love this gun. i got a leupold 3x9 on & it's a sweet set up

d80hunter 11-29-2017 06:07 AM

It is a nice caliber. My 7mm-08 been in the safe all season because I'm always taking the .450 to the woods.
